    Evangeline Lilly had her last big-screen venture last year and now she feels fame and wealth are overwhelming to her. Hence, she wants to step away from Hollywood life and acting. The Golden Globe nominee confirmed this news through a post on social media.

    She wrote on Instagram, “I am so filled with joy and contentment today as I live out my vision. Praise God, I feel so grateful for my blessings.”

    The post continued, “Stepping away from what seems like the obvious choice (wealth and fame) can feel scary at times, but stepping into your dharma replaces the fear with fulfillment.”

    It’s not completely sad news for the fans of Evangeline as she is still hopeful of returning to the big screen someday. The actress is not investing her time in acting right now but will focus on more closure with her family and contribute her human resources to humanitarian grounds.

    The post continued with a shot clip, “I would like to have a family, and I’d like to be writing, and potentially, maybe, influencing people’s lives in more humanitarian ways.”  Lilly shared a throwback video from 2006, which shared the hope of getting retired from acting within a decade.

    The note also added, “might return to Hollywood one day, but, for now, this is where I belong, a new season has arrived, and I AM READY…and I AM HAPPY.”

    Her sudden retirement also raised questions about who would take over her role in Marvel‘s Ant-Man movie series. Seems like the MCU has to look for another potential actress for the role.
